Success! Thanks for posting your review of Adelmo's Ristorante. You’ve done the world some good today.

Always Great

Adelmo's has long been one of the best kept secrets in Dallas. The food meets every standard, the service is quietly effecient, the setting is exactly what you would expect in any European establishment, and the overall warmth is exceptional. Visiting Adelmo's last Saturday evening proved that the standard set by Adelmo so many years ago endures. The patrons of this restaurant are of every age group, ethnicity, and o... view more

Definitely never again!

When we arrived at Adelmo's we were seated next to a large group, despite there being plenty of other seating available. And it's a small restaurant. They were so incredibly noisy I couldn't hear what my companion was saying for the entire evening. \r \r The reason this is a problem is that it was very clear that the noisy table were regulars, and that it was apparently to be expected that we would be annoyed as we w... view more

What a gem!

We stumbled upon Adelmo's last week. I can't believe that I had not been here before. The food is just wonderful. We started with a shrimp and pea risotto that was just sublime. We were going to share a zuppa di pesce, but I ended up keeping it to myself, and my husband ordered the buffalo tenderloin. Very gracious service, and the setting could not have been more relaxing. Topped it all off with a limoncello. Just a... view more

I'm Italian and lived in Italy for almost 30 years. Well Adelmo's has been one of the wrst experience of my life. I had a Lasagna and other than the name nothing was like a lasagna. Plus the place is quite expensive. For the same type of food, go to Olive's Garden at least is cheaper. Adelmo, the owner, is Italian so what is he doing at the bar, his place should be in the kitchen!!!!! It is not an Italian restaurant ... view more

Extremely rude staff

My husband and I were excited to try Adelmo's after reading great reviews on the food and atmosphere. We never got to try the food for ourselves, as we were treated so poorly by the waiter who was seating us that we turned around and left. We went on a Wednesday evening, and the restaurant was not full - he directed us to a table next to the front door, and we asked if we could sit somewhere else, as it was right by ... view more

Unpleasant Anniversary

On our anniversary, my husband and I were anticipating a cozy, quiet romantic dinner on our first trip to Adelmo's. We were seated between two large tables, each celebrating a birthday, and the noise was so loud in the small room that we literally could not hear each other without shouting across the small table. A large party should have been served upstairs. The service was excellent, but the calamari and the group... view more

Review from Mrs. Astrid Merriman

Adelmo's is one of the most versatile restaurants in the Knox-Henderson food district. Having been a customer for years we call Adelmo's Mother's Kitchen. We can spontaneously decide to go and not dress for dinner and still have a fabulous meal and magnificent bottle of wine. When we want to do a corporate dinner Adelmo will create a wine tasting and menu to match. He can do anyithing. With advance notice he can make... view more

VERY romantic!

This is the perfect place to propose. I went there last night and it is cozy, the food amazing and the service excellent! It's like dining in a little coittage in iIaly. They are on the top of my list for valentine date place as well. Go see why! Limited seating so make a reservation early for special occasions. Beautiful, fairly priced and very romantic. Bravo!

Charming place

Tucked in on Cole avenue you will find one of the oldest Italian restaurants around. One of the owners humbly mentioned one day to me that they have ?honest food?. It is a very modest statement. This place is absolutely charming and the food superb! This is a perfect place to shut down for a private party as well. So if you have a party where you are looking for a quaint place of your own, this is it. If you are just... view more
